  • My new storage building!!

    Check out my new storage unit:



    Measures 9' wide x 45' long.

    Here's a pic of the interior:



    The upper shelves will stay, seats out, of course... has a Cummins that runs but has a blown turbo; auto trans. (Allison?) It's a 1995.

    Advantages: Will never rot or leak, no amount of snow can crush it, no maintenance, great floor plus off the ground plus windows means NO moisture or mold EVER- and far cheaper to buy (I paid $600!) and easier to move than any other building [^]

    Disadvantages: Looking at it gets old fast, so you've gotta be able to put it out of sight (I can); lots of towns wouldn't let you have one (I can)...

    If you can hide one, I recommend it highly...

    This'll giv eme lots of room to keep Stude stuff; look out Frank Drumheller, here I come

    Hold up BAMS! We need that thing running and in South Bend so Clunk can take us on tours. Besides, once we all retire to the Administration Building we can use it for group doctor's visits.

        What about the luggage compartment? There must be tons of space under that floor! Pretty cool rig I think it looks great, I don't see any damage or anything ugly about it! [^] Nice seats too, maybe you can have a big yard sale of seats! [^]

                        Fact of the matter is, I AM ambivalent about making it into a shed... those shelves contain the ductwork for full-length A/C (intact) and it even has a restroom in the back; it's really quite a rig!

                        It was bought at auction by a guy who intended to have the engine fixed and sell it overseas- same as they do with full-size school buses now. He had it towed to a local heavy-truck shop, who apparently quoted way more to fix than owner figured... so the shop ended up with it, and sold it to me.

                        It's fun to drive- but pours raw oil out the tailpipe and smokes like nothing I've EVER seen before![:0] The oil feed line to the turbo has been plugged off, so I'm guessing more than a turbo... but even in good running condition, I couldn't realistically use it for anything; so storage it probably is!

                        The seats in it are incredible! I'd hate to throw them away; so I'll probably put them a few at a time out by the road at one of my car lots with a "Free-take 'em" sign...

                        Anybody want some? Free (plus shipping)

                            Oh yeah- the under-floor storage will probably go to waste as it'll be really close to 2 currently existing units

                            AND- It wouldn't help me to retire to SB anyway- I need my cars and buidings- and my stuff!! I'm in the planning stages of my dream shop here at my house- 2 lifts, paint booth, indoor space for 20 or so cars, and a big gameroom/lounge overhead [] I'll be in touch with you all in SB through this forum, though....




                            Unless you move here to the Compound............[8D]
